Did you know that you can transform your photos and videos into cartoons or drawing? You can if you’re using the ToonCamera app. With ToonCamera, you can apply cartoon-like filters to your existing photos or to a photo or video that you’re about to shoot for some truly impressive results.
The brush or pencil icon on the bottom of the screen allows you to change the art style of the filter such as line drawing, brush painting, ect. You can press the various styles to view a quick preview. Swipe to the left to view additional styles.
The Squiggle icon appears to lighten or darken an image, as well as modify image contrast.
To switch modes between video, camera or your photo albums, click the circle comprised of two line arrows. Below the circle is an icon for whatever mode is currently active. Tapping the circle toggles between the photo album icon, the camera icon and the video icon. Tap the camera icon to take a photo, the photo album icon to choose an image from your photo albums or the video icon to begin shooting video.
Tap the lightbulb icon to turn on the flashlight, which can come in handy when shooting in low light. And if you’re into taking some truly unique selfies, the head icon toggles between the front and rear camera. Once you’re done, you can share your creation via email, Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, Twitter, Tumblr, SMS and even YouTube or save it to your photo album.
Playing around with the app, I came up with some quite interesting – and even artistic – images. I was tickled to see my mere photos transformed into near works of art and as an added bonus, playing around with the effects and filters is a lot of fun. For .99, it’s definitely worth checking out. There is both an iPad and iPhone version.
